Please help me clean up this page by:

        1.  Creating links to all the mentioned TCG sets,
        2.  Writing articles on all the red links, such as the Holon Engine.

If I think up anything else, I'll add it. I'll also try to work on these myself. 00:54, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

New sets

This is a minor concern, but please make sure that a set is released in stores before adding it to the current metagame. I noticed that someone added Legends Awakened before it's release date, and that is incorrect. Technically, even if prereleases for a set have taken place, a set is not legal until it hits stores. Thank you. --ニョロトノ666 16:42, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I added it without thinking as soon as we finished the Legends Awakened pages. I've been to enough prereleases to know the cards aren't legal until release, so this was just a minor error. Incidentally, however, you've edited the page too early: officially, the new rotation doesn't come into effect until September 1 of every year, regardless of when Worlds takes place.

Legend Collection and Basic Energies

Is Legend Collection out of rotation as well? Can basic energies be used from any expansion packs?

Yeah, Legendary Collection was rotated out in the first rotation after Nintendo took over; the first Modified format with Nintendo running the game (that for the 2003-04 season) was Expedition-on.
As for the basic Energy cards, all basic Energy cards from any set are allowed for play regardless of circumstances. For example, one could build an entire Pokémon and Trainer engine using only cards from HeartGold & SoulSilver, yet use only basic Energy cards printed way back in the Base Set. --Shiningpikablu252 18:42, 31 December 2009 (UTC)


Cards from older sets

I think it would be a great idea to add a list of cards from older sets that are also legal like how Charzard from Base Set is also legal because it was reprined just need a refernce because of the word change.

(I went a head and added Call of Legends and Black & White to the list) - unsigned comment from Jawsisra (talkcontribs)

Another rotation

In my Pokemon League, the employee said that the cards from Majestic Dawn to Arceus are already rotated, should we edit it? --Funicode 21:45, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Missing Sets

Is there a reason Plasma Blast has been completely omitted from the list? It belongs between Plasma Freeze and Legendary Treasures. - unsigned comment from CommissarMouse (talkcontribs)
